, a job well done, the nation is grateful, the world is grateful, thank you hillary clinton, and back to two per team. thank you. [applause] -- and thank you to her team. also, i want to thank president obama for his trust in me to take on this awesome task and for his trust in every single one of you and what you do every single day. i think it is beyond fair to say that this president's vision and what he has implemented from your efforts over the course of the last years without any question, has restored america's reputation and place in the world and we thank you for what you have done to do that. [applause] i said the other day at the hearings, if any of you had a chance to see any of it -- i said the senate was in my blood and it is after 28 + is. but it is also true that foreign service is in my genes and everything we do here is. i have a sister who worked for most of her career in new york at the un and most recently at the un mission. my wife, who was born in mozambique, and you will see here on wednesday, speaks five languages. at some location, she did translating but wor
? >> andrea mitchell in our d.c. newsroom tonight, thanks. >>> as andrea pointed out, it was our own michael isikoff's exclusive reporting that revealed the obama administration's ground rules governing its use of drones. place the topic in conversation, michael was in that hearing today and is with us from capitol hill tonight. the question, mike, how much more did we learn about the president's drone policy? >> reporter: brian, if anybody felt we were going to learn more about targeted killings and drones today, they were disappointed in some respects. brennan said less today than he has already acknowledged in public speeches. i was listening very closely. the whole hearing. the word "drones" never left his lips. the big questions raised by that white paper are what are the standards upon which americans who are suspected of being al qaeda leaders can be targeted for killings. what constitutes an imminent threat? who gets to decide whether the secret intelligence is sound enough and whether there is any review. presumably, the memo that president obama let senators read this morning would
obama as well as national security affairs to president clinton. p.j., many thanks. >> pleasure, john. >> john: have a great evening. joining me via skype, one of the foremost critics of the not so secret drone program glenn greenwald, columnist are in the british newspaper the guardian and author of with liberty and justice for some, how the law is used to protect the powerful. what a pleasure to have you with us. >> thank you. thanks for having me. >> john: today was a pretty busy day. senator feinstein told the committee according to the information she has from the white house which she said the committee's trying to confirm civilian casualties from drone strikes are in single digits each year. what does your research tell you tell you about that? whatever the government labels the human targets be it terrorists evil combatants, aren't they all really civilians? >> i think you really hit on a key point in that question which is what the definition of a civilian. what we know is the government statistics are inherently unreliable. that's because, as "the new york times" reported ju
. then they have two weeks to pass alternatives or the cuts begin. >> chris: we'll stay on top of it. thank you. still ahead, may be clouds on the horizon for the solar power industry, but first a pep talk for the president's agenda. >>. >> chris: president obama was on what should be friendly turf. he met with senate democrats how they can help turn it into law. mike emanuel has more. >> he went to annapolis to private rally democrat senators. it includes controversial issues gun control, climate change, immigration and fiscal matters such as taxes and spending. white house aides say the senate democrats play an important role in advancing his agenda which has political risks. >> he thinks the american people understandably expect congress to vote on these important matters, to vote yes or no. he would hope that the senate has an opportunity to do that. >> republican sources identify eight senators up for reelection in 2014, most at risk supporting the white house agenda. one early test of democratic unity and at risk members may come with dianne feinstein's weapons ban which they find lukewar
commander in chief, president barack obama. [applause] >> thank you. please be seated. in the years between the world wars, a young married couple in italy packed up what few belongings that they had and boardedx a boat for a new world. they pass under the statute of liberty, and went through the lines of ellis island. carmelo and carmelita panetta had no money and spoke little english. but they had a dream of a better life. they worked hard. they went west to california. they started a family and taught their sons that if they studied and worked, if they gave back to this country that they too could shell in a creek share in america pause, street today we pay tribute to their son, leon panetta, a man who has not simply lived up to the american dream, but has helped to protect it, for all of us. leon, our presence here today, members of congress, deputy secretary carter, general betsy, and members of the joint chiefs, service secretaries, and the men and women of the greatest military that the world has ever known, all this is a reflection of our personal appreciation to you and the gratitu
. mr. jones: mr. speaker, thank you very much. i want to thank president obama for his nomination of chuck hagel to be secretary of defense. while we were home last week, i had the opportunity to watch the senate confirmation hearing, and i was dismayed by the way many of the republicans on that hearing chastised mr. hagel. mr. hagel is a man of integrity. i -- the question from one of the senators about, do you think the surge worked, and senator hagel was such he didn't want to give him a direct answer. i would have said no, it didn't work. 1,200 americans killed. i don't know how many iraqis. look at the country today. it is totally falling apart. that was a question towards senator hagel. . the iraq war was very unnecessary. it was manufactured by the previous administration, and there was a marine general, greg newbold, who actually wrote an article in "time" after the war started and one of the points he made that i'm going to share with you, mr. speaker, is some of the missteps included the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. the distortion of intelligence
the questioning of hillary clinton over benghazi. kelly o'donnell, it's been busy on the hill. thanks for staying on top of it all. >> exactly 40 years ago tomorrow, president obama traveled to elkhart, indiana, to sell his economic stimulus plan. at the time the manufacturing industry had collapsed and nearly one in five people were out of work. the president vowed to carry those stories with him. >> i promised you back then that if elected i would do everything i could to help this community recover, and that's why i came back today, because i intend to keep my promise. >> because of that promise, nbcnews.com began a series called the elkhart project, tracking their progress. chuck todd checked in with the president. >> reporter: let me show you the front page of the elkhart truth. clearly your presidency now and how it's playing in elkhart and they believe your fortunes. is that fair? >> absolutely f. i'm successful i'll be able to look back and say elkhart has not just come back from the brink but is poised to move forward in the 21st century. >> the elkhart truth. a great newspaper name. fas
. >> thank you. which is why i don't think obama will have any problem with this. >> i think it helps him. >> he'll look like a strong, and just like he did a year ago, just like when he killed bin laden, he looks incredibly strong on foreign policy. and this will not provide a weak spot for him in the long run. >> mika, really quickly, i agree with you there. i don't think there's going to be a political fallout from it. >> yeah. >> i think one of the things that disturbs me so much is the fact that americans are not any more concerned about other americans being able to be targeted and killed without any due process. and i'll say it again because i can hear people saying, well, why didn't you say that about george w. bush? i did. i did on padilla. i did when there were americans whose constitutional rights were being eviscerated by what was going on during the bush era. i spoke out then. i'm speaking out now. but i'm frightened that more americans are not focused on this. >> so i also think what's fair is your frustration, if you have any, about the hypocrisy in terms of the reaction on
? joining us now is oregon democratic senator ron wyden, who has repeatedly asked the obama administration bower drone policy. senator wyden, it's good to see you. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for having me again. >> did you not in fact get what you had asked the president to give you and that you thought you would be getting this morning based on your conversation with the president last night? >> rachel, it's not clear. the fact is, and i went in first thing this morning, i was able to read some information that was helpful. i'm just not convinced yet that it is the full legal analysis that we need to do to do vigorous oversight. what today was really about is of course it was a nomination hearing for john brennan. but it ultimately was a question of upholding our system of checks and balances in government. and i think that system is out of whack these days and we've got to do some more for transparency and accountability in getting those checks and balances back. >> in terms of this specific program that you've been asking about the legal advice for, specifically targeting
rowlands, thank you, ted. >>> doctors are revealing why a pilot passed out, midflight. stick around for this one. >>> an about-face involving obama care. remember when religious groups were up in arms about a contraception mandate? we talked so much about that. suddenly now a compromise. how this impacts you. next. w! oil changes at meineke are always a great deal. then you're going to love this. right now they're only $14.95! wow-a grt deal just got a whole lot better. hurry. $14.95 won't last. >>> just in to me here at cnn, we're learning why an alaskan airlines pilot passed out midflight. the plane was taking off from los angeles last night. i want to go to renee more, in washington. renee, before we get to what doctors are saying about this, give met back story. >> that's right. you know, this is -- imagine being on this plane, so scary to hear the details here. the flight was midair when the pilot essentially passed out. there were 116 people on the plane and five crew members as well. again, that plane now because the pilot passed out had to make an emergency landing at portla
. >> i probably will too. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago at this time when president obama was just starting his first term, news networks, including this one, made a somewhat unusual decision to show live on tv the arrival of one of the new cabinet secretaries at the department that she had just been appointed to lead. to broadcast live essentially a cabinet secretary's first day on the job. the reception that that cabinet secretary got that day was raucous. [ applause ] [ cheering ] a cabinet secretary starting work, right? it's not your typical multiple network life news event. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton. [ cheering and applause

for walter. caller: yes, ma'am. hello? thank you for taking my call. i appreciate it. i sit here and i remember president obama before he was mr. obama said water boarding is torture and terrible and we will raise and elevate the way we treat people. that different countries will respect us again. now he is turning around and not just water boarding them but telling american people that if there are american citizens in foreign countries, i am just going to kill them. i will not try them or bring them up on charges or do any of that. i would just wax them. it just opens a whole new can of worms of shredding the constitution and just another example of people in power that abuse power and think they are above the law. and i don't understand how they can do it and justify it. as far as secrecy, the government has been keeping secrets from us ever since the beginning of time. when the people fear the government, you have terry -- when the government fears the people, you have democracy. of this land is slowly being destroyed by big business and a large conglomerate of power groups and we
readiness. i want to thank secretary dunkin and president obama for the opportunity to innovate and build a new college and career readiness based assessment and accountability system in kentucky through the waiver process, and i hope the waiver process will certainly inform reauthorization. with no child left behind, i've been a supporter of the legislation. every child should meet proficiency. we failed to meet the needs of the children who needed our help the most. however, as we agree, the vision of no child left behind was right, we lost something in the transition to details. begin the challenges of implementation and the looming 2014 time line of no child left behind to reach 100 proficiency, the council of chief state school officers convened a group of chiefs to develop a model for next generation accountability systems that would focus on college and career readiness. this group is a natural progression @ successful work on the common core standards. during this time, the administration was also working on the waiver process, and we think both of those were working together alon
the gentleman for his questions. i thank all the questions from the committee. i also thank the panel. you have endured more than three hours of restaurants. -- of questions. thank you for making this trip to washington to participate. we will excuse you now and turn to our second panel. >> president obama today asked for a short-term agreement with congress to avoid across-the- board spending cuts that are part of sequestration. the president opposing remarks are next on c-span. then, at house debate on the budget. some of the automatic spending cuts delayed by congress in december are scheduled to take effect next month. on the next "washington journal" we will talk about those cuts and proposals for increasing tax revenue and changing entitlement programs such as medicare and social security. i were guest is republican ofgressman michaelburge burgess texas. then representative henry waxman of california. your phone calls and tweets everyday day at 7 a.m. eastern on c-span. president obama announced his plan for a series of automatic spending cuts -- and for avoiding a series of automatic spe
. it's friday and it's february 1. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time with us today. a rough ride for president obama's pick to run the pentagon. what former senator chuck hagel said that have many people no longer worried about his views but his competence. >>steve: this is your pilot sleeping. the veteran pilot who was supposed to land that airplane passed out behind the control is what happened. we did wind up scrambling a fire truck if that tells you anything. let's go down to brian kilmeade at the super bowl. i know it's a special day if he gives me an introduction to the cold open. i'm awake now but it was an extremely late night. my trip to bourbon street. >> nowhere on bourbon street would you find santa claus partying. >>brian: that's an interesting hat. i will not be bringing it back. the real nfl experience live from new orleans. that's where we are. "fox & friends" starts now. [music] >>brian: that is the tulane marching band. they were there. we have the tulane cheerleaders as well. it's early for them. to the right we've got the louisiana national guard
in for a long time, john. >> thanks, reza. >> there's going to be a lot of talk about this here locally as well. congressional lawmakers will get access to classified documents concerning the targeted killings of americans overseas. president obama will release documents to two committees outlining the legal justification for drone strikes that kill u.s. terror suspects abroad. the administration's drone program has been shrouded in secrecy and criticized by many members of congress. the white house says more than two dozen senior al qaeda members have been killed in drone strikes, including one american citizen. >>> meantime the president's nominee for cia director, john brennan, has his confirmation hearing today, the drone issue almost certain to come up because brennan was one of the architect's of the drone policy. as cnn's barbara starr tells us, he's about to feel the heat from senators on both sides of the aisle. >> and mr. john brennan. >> reporter: when president obama's pick for cia director heads to capitol hill today for his confirmation hearing, there's some in the president's own
governor christie. [applause] [laughter] >> thank you for your service. i have some comments. you have said president obama believes is done carefully, deliberately and responsibly, we can be more transparent and still ensure our nation's security. i absolutely agree. the american people have the right to know whether government does on their behalf. consistent with our national security, the presumption of transparency should be the rule, not the exception. and the government should make as much information available to the american public as possible. so on the committee when and we as members of congress push hard for access to the legal analysis targeting americans using drones, for instance, it erodes the government's credibility by the american people. i want to say i'm grateful to the president for allowing members of this committee to brief review some of the information. this is an important first debt. there's much more to be done in that regard. you have heard that from my colleagues today. i have long believed our government also has an obligation to the american people to face
points memo, evan mc-- mcmorris santoro. >> you guys have so much going on today. >> bill: thank you. there is a lot going on. one of the things i love about this time is we're not just talking budget deficits, right? >> obama is on the road talking guns and immigration. the bully pullity is being used. >> bill: meetings at the white house on the tame -- same topics. you couldn't have this in any other city in the country. new york saying good-bye to ed koch the three-term governor. did you ever meet him? mayor. ran for governor, lost. >> i think i met him once at a conference briefly. he was a force of nature. he just knew how to -- he was just -- he knew how to command a room. very entertaining person. when i was working for jerry brown, jerry brown would never go to official meetings of mayors or governors or whatever. we used to send me. and i think it was during one of the conventions in new york that the mayor then, mayor koch, had a reception for the governors at gracey mansion. jerry brown refused to go. so he sent me. and i would -- i was in my 20s. i introduced myself. to t
recognizes the gentleman from california. mr. takano: thank you, madam chair. madam chair, i'd like to call this the don't shift blame amendment. the bill before us today tries to blame president obama for all our fiscal woes. judging by the language of this legislation, i'm convinced that house republicans live in a world where our entire national debt suddenly appeared on january 21, 2009. but let's be clear. our debt was not created by the president alone, and while the president may be responsible for sending us a budget blueprint, it is ultimately congress that holds the power of the purse. i think my colleagues on the other side of the aisle are forgetting a key part of our job. the president does not pass budget, nor does he appropriate funds. congress does. my amendment makes a simple change to the finding section of the bill that clarifies that congress has the constitutional responsibility to fund the federal government. now, i can guarantee that when the majority introduces its budget this month it will be so extreme that it has no chance of passing both houses. the republican ma
